Integrity & Transparency

We believe that transparency comes in many forms – from being open about financial performance, to driving deeper stakeholder engagement, to improving monitoring and reporting within the organization and across our supply chain.

Our approach

We take the view that transparency is indispensable in our corporate responsibility journey. There are increasing demands for greater disclosure of payments to governments by commodity trading firms and upstream oil producers. Disclosure can assist in improving governance in resource-rich countries.
As a facilitator of oil trade, we also believe that natural resource wealth should be an important engine for economic growth that contributes to sustainable development and poverty reduction. Being open about how we manage natural resources gives the populations in countries where we operate the tools to hold governments and business to account.

Petrogress management Vision is “in striving for harmony and symbiosis between our planet, mankind and society we aim for sustainable growth towards a future of limitless possibilities”

Risk management

Integrity and transparency are the principles that guide Petrogress action in formulating a management and control structure that is suited to its size, complexity and operating structure, in adopting an effective internal control and risk management system, and in communicating with shareholders and other stakeholders.

Petrogress business is built upon understanding and managing risk. Its management structure incentivizes the preservation of capital and a measured approach to risk, and creates a culture of responsibility and accountability.
Our ability to effectively manage the risk inherent in commodities trading is fundamental to Petrogress continued development and stability.
